What does it mean to be an authentic leader? How do we know when we are being one? What is the impact on our people and the business overall? A November 2014 survey by Interaction Associates revealed that of those surveyed over half gave their leaders low marks on trust and effective leadership. Why? Well it turns out that talking about being an authentic leader and actually modelling or behaving as an authentic leader are two completely different things.

The skills workers of the future will need will be adaptability, flexibility, increased desire to provide customized solutions for each other and for customers. With the soon to be launch of the new Apple Watch there is another advance in how technology can be leveraged to improve our lives and work. With the Apple Watch you can read emails, summon Siri, receive calls and track fitness goals on your watch. Facebook alerts, WeChat messages and Twitter trends can also be beamed your wrist without pulling out your smartphone. Apple's first wearable gadget beams messages, Facebook updates and simplified apps to our wrists, eliminating the all-too-common need to take out our devices to constantly check notifications. So how does increasingly simple technology improve how we interact with each other? We will communicate with more ease AND will need to increase people connection skills.
leadershiplanguageThe evolution of leadership from autocratic to inclusive is a journey that many leaders are still looking to master. Making the change from a mindset of authority and power towards a mindset of sharing successes and equalization of power is a big one. One of the key ingredients of leading change is the ability to lead with the new leadership language that is required to inspire and engage today's workforce and to set the tone for the future workplace.  
hbrcoverleaders If there is one thing that CEO's tell me they are looking for right now its great leaders. An IBM survey in 2012 stated that companies main focus is technology. With the increase on focus on technology there is an increased need for extraordinary leadership. Leaders who can skillfully maneuver the fast paced change of technology AND have increased agility in leading change and influencing teams to greater results is increasingly hard to find. Why? In my research and focus groups on what makes a great leader it seems that the skills of what USED to constitute a great leader have not been upgraded. With the influx of technology there is a whole bunch of leaders using outdated skills - all leaders need to upgrade the leadership OS in order to be a GREAT leader in today's reality. What does that mean and what will it take to find the great leaders that are out there?
